WallyKokoNut, the newest addition to Wally’s extensive fleet of luxury yachts, is now available for charter in Corsica and Sardinia. The semicustom yacht is the second entry in the Monaco-based company’s WallyAce series, which debuted in August 2012.
For 20 years, Wally has been building innovative yachts with a focus on design and technical advancement, and the 86-foot WallyKokoNut is no exception. To minimize noise and vibrations and maximize comfort and stability, the 85-foot yacht employs low-rpm engines that can propel it to a top speed of 12 knots. These engines also offer the added benefit of reducing fuel consumption to 1.6 gallons per mile, giving the boat a total range of more than 3,450 miles. Fuel consumption is not the only thing that’s been lowered: With the engine room and tender garage located at midship, WallyKokoNut’s center of gravity is low, allowing it to sail smoothly over waves.
The yacht’s design is modern and minimalistic, featuring clean lines, plenty of open space, and contemporary furnishings in walnut wood and pearl gray fabric. Its 1,375 square feet of open-air social space is spread over two decks, including a 645-square-foot sundeck with six sun beds, three sofas, and a fully equipped bar.
WallyKokoNut’s 538 square feet of interior space includes twin VIP cabins and two large double cabins that open onto a terrace with direct access to the water. Two of the cabins are equipped with an additional Pullman bed, allowing the yacht to accommodate as many as 10 guests. The main deck, spanning 1,290 square feet, includes a glass-enclosed superstructure that houses a lounge, a dining area, and the navigation and steering station.
WallyKokoNut is available for charter through Floating Life for a weekly rate ranging from about $68,000 to $75,000. (www.floatinglife.com)
